3 Ways to Prep for Memorial Day Events

3 Ways to Prep for Memorial Day Events

As Covid restrictions lift around the country, the event industry will see it’s first “normal” holiday weekend celebrations in over a year. 

As we all get back into the swing of things, party rental companies and venues alike should be prepared to serve customers eager to gather for the Memorial Day weekend.

That being said, whether it is a backyard barbeque, wedding or ceremony in honor of Memorial Day, we have a few ways you can prepare for these upcoming events:

Inspect, inspect, inspect!

It’s time to dust off that inventory of linens, folding tables and chairs . You may want to start with a thorough cleaning:

After that, you’ll want to inspect inventory for any chipping or scratching. Also keep in mind sturdiness - do any joints need to be tightened? Are any support areas bent?

Take Stock - Add and Replace Where Needed

First, do you have the inventory to meet the upcoming demand? Make sure to order new inventory so you receive it in time to unbox and also inspect. 

This also goes for inventory that upon inspection should be replaced. You’ll want your inventory to be an asset to your customers' events, not bring them down.

Consider the Weather

In certain parts of the country May be particularly mild, here in New England it is still an unpredictable weather month. If the weather is looking hot you’ll want to make sure your events stay cool with market umbrellas. If rain is in the forecast, you’ll want to have your party tents and canopies ready. 

You may also want to suggest weather resistant seating options such as resin folding chairs and plastic folding tables if there is an unexpected thunderstorm or pop shower as they can easily be wiped down.  

I think we’re all ready for Memorial Day celebrations this particular year, but make sure you’re prepared!
